Host Response to the Lung Microbiome in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine

May 7, 2015

Marc A SzeJames C Hogg

Abstract

The relatively sparse but diverse microbiome in human lungs may become less diverse in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This article examines the relationship of this microbiome to emphysematous tissue destruction, number of terminal bronchioles, infiltrating inflammatory c...read more
